Outdoor 'L.A.' Movies at Barnsdall Park

The Barnsdall Art Park Foundation's Saturday Outdoor Movies series will screen each Saturday this month a film that showcases the architectural and historical uniqueness of Los Angeles. The series starts this Saturday, September 4, with "500 Days of Summer." Bring a blanket and a picnic, or travel light and pick up on-site wine and Eagle Rock Brewery microbrews served by El Prado Bar, hot dogs from the Let's Be Frank truck and Lake Street Creamery ice cream. Doors open and drinks are served starting at 5:30 pm; screenings start promptly at 7:30 pm.

The series continues on Saturday, September 11 with "LA Story," on September 18 with "LA Confidential," and on September 25 with "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" All screenings are 17+ except for Roger Rabbit, which is open to all ages. The films are being screened on the West Lawn of the historic Frank Lloyd Wright Hollyhock House.

Free parking is available at Barnsdall Art Park and at Kaiser Hospital on Sunset just west of Vermont. Better yet, the Vermont/Sunset Metro Red Line station is right next to the park, as are multiple bus lines.

All proceeds will support Barnsdall Art Park Foundation programs and projects including free Sunday art classes for children and families and restoration of the historic Hollyhock House. For more information and tickets, visit
